Prisoner Escaped From Work Detail

A prisoner on a work detail made a run for it Monday afternoon in Rincon Georgia, and as of 11 pm Monday night law enforcement was still trying to find him.

Jorge Tirado was working on Fort Howard Road when he told an officer he had to go to the bathroom. Officers let him go and the next thing they knew he made a dart for the woods. Immediately law enforcement started searching with dogs, but still no Tirado.

The Georgia Department of Corrections says Tirado is not a violent offender and was in jail for trafficking cocaine.
